ASUS ROG Strix Z590-A Gaming WIFI

The ASUS ROG Strix Z590-A Gaming WIFI is a four-letter distinguished Strix Z590 model, with a very subtle silver and white aesthetic on a black PCB. Some of the A's primary features include support for up to DDR4-5333 memory, three PCIe M.2 slots, six SATA ports, and an Intel 2.5 Gb Ethernet controller. Design-wise, the board uses silver, and white heatsinks, with ASUS Strix branding on the chipset heatsink and an RGB-enabled ROG logo on the rear panel cover.

Towards the board's center is three full-length PCIe 4.0 slots that operate at x16, x8/x4, and x8/x4/+x4, with a single PCIe 3.0 x4 half-length slot. For storage, the Strix Z590-A has three M.2 slots, one operating at PCIe 4.0 x4, and two with support for PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA drives. The board also has six SATA ports arrayed in a single file along the right-hand side, with support for RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays. In the top right-hand corner is four memory slots with support for up to DDR4-5333, with a maximum combined capacity of 128 GB.

On the rear panel are a single USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, four USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, and five USB 2.0 ports. Included for users planning on using Intel's UHD integrated graphics are a DisplayPort and HDMI video output combination, with a single RJ45 port powered by an Intel I225-V 2.5 GbE controller. The five 3.5 mm audio jacks are powered by a ROG SupremeFX ALC4080 HD audio codec, with a USB Type-C audio port which is quite rare. ASUS doesn't specify which Wi-Fi 6 interface it is using, but it's likely an Intel AX200 or AX201. Finishing off the rear panel is a small BIOS Flashback button.

    I'm a bit surprised they went to an x8 3.0 link on the chipset instead of an x4 4.0 one, even if everything coming off of the chipset is still limited to 3.0 speed.

    Might be because it makes routing the traces easier, they don't have to adhere to the PCIe 4.0 signal requirements. Downside would be that more pins are required.

    Other being quite boring platform , there is noticeable lack of M-ATX offerings.

    Also it seems like even with properly finned heatsinks Gigabyte Aorus master requires a fan to cool VRMs which is not a good sign.
